Lomax Collection Recording of Kaulong


Topics Kaulong, pss


This is a recording of Kaulong and a pidgin. This is a recording from Alan Lomax's Parlametrics collection. These recordings were made by linguists around the world as well as by Lomax himself. They have been digitized from the original reel-to-reel tapes. The original notes which accompanied the tapes were often either incomplete, indefinite, illegible or missing. Because of this, the language in this recording may not have been identified or may have been misidentified. If you notice a mistake and know what language this is, please help us out by sharing your knowledge and leave a comment. Excerpts from the original notes follow. As the notes were sometimes illegible, place or personal names may be misspelled: One of the descriptions probably pertains to this recording. Kaulong, Neomelanesian Pidgin. We seem to be missing the Head of the Pig myth told by Punuli. It would be the 8th track. Jane C Goodale, Bryn Mawr College. 8 male monologues, 2 female monologues. There are two regions represented which the speakers identify as differing in style, accent. UMBI is a village in the remote interior. UMBI is about 20 miles from Kandrian -north-. A_gelek is a village 10 miles NW of Kandrian -an area of greater contact-. Each selection is followed by a repeat -not translation- of the story,myth in Neo-Melanesian Pigin by the same story teller. Few males in Umbi where anywhere fluent in Pigin, while nearly everyone in A_gelek considered Pigin a second language in which they often lapsed into without warning. 0.
